how to add buttons using USB
« on: June 04, 2009, 02:13:53 PM »
I would like to add some jogging buttons, without using the printer port.
The computer only has USB ports. So is there a simple device I can buy to which I can connect a couple of keys?

Pokeys will allow you up to 55 digital inputs or outputs.

You can also use a few of the I/O as analogue inputs so that you can have a feed override pot and spindle override as well :)
